. diplomats who gave their lives representing the united states of america. >> all over the world, every day, america's diplomats and development experts risk their lives, because they believe that the united states must be a force for peace and progress in the world. >> reporter: jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >>> now for the bigger picture we turn to abc's global affairs anchor, christiane amanpour, who reported from this region for years, was on the frontlines for us for years during the arab spring. what have you heard about whether this is al queda, a different kind of al qaeda affiliate at all? >> clearly intelligence and security forces are looking into that. we don't know and i've been cautioned not to say it is al qaeda yet. they're still looking for exactly who is responsible. >> and today we were struck by something secretary of state clinton said. i think a lot of americans have been saying the same thing. how could this happen? she posed this question, in a country we helped liberate? what does this say now about americans in this region? >> i can imagine so many americans
in the united states of america! a convention not just of symbolism, but of substance. this is the first time that a major party platform recognizes marriage equality as a basic human right! >> the los angeles mayor, who is also the chair of the 2012 democratic national convention committee. now more from president obama's speech. >>> this is the choice we now face. this is what the election comes down to. over and over we've been told by our opponents that bigger tax cuts and fewer regulations are the only way, that since government can't do everything, it should do almost nothing. if you can't afford health insurance, hope that you don't get sick. if a company releases toxic pollution into the air, your children breathe, well, that's the price of progress. if you can't afford to start a business or go to college, take my oppent's advice and borrow money from your parents. you know what? that's not who we are. that's not what this country is about. as americans, we believe we are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, rights that no man or government can take away. we insist
of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> and the president is on the case and sent two u.s. warships to the libyan coast and marines into tripoli and the fbi has opened an investigation into the attack that killed those four americans. contrast that with what mitt romney did today, campaigning in virginia. let's listen to him. >> as we watch the world today, sometimes it seems that we're at the mercy of events instead of shaping events and a strong america is to shape events and a strong america, by the way, depends on a strong military. this president has done something i find very hard to understand. ever since fdr, we've had the capacity to be engaged in two conflicts at once and he's saying, no, we're going to cut that back to only one conflict. >> joe klein, thank you. because you have a big picture look of this. what is mitt romney talking about that is relevant to aur our ability to deal with the group of militants in a place like benghazi that go against the embassy or going against the embassy and ambassadors of the embassy itself in care iro, be egypt. >>
to be the standard security in high risk consuls and embassies that the united states has around the world and that includes no low refile armored vehicles, the vehicles that have the tires that will continue to operate even if they're shot out. and other security measures were not there on the ground. general jack keane commented on the security that was missing here on fox. >> there's been a pattern of attacks all through the summer. so we have a pat he tern of specific aggressive attacks and finally, our consulate is attacked. now, that's a movement that's doing that and that is coordinated. i don't think any film, even 9/11 maybe the day they chose to do it because of its significance, but that's certainly people who are out of power, there are moderates in power in libya, they want it undermine that government and foreign powers assisting that government are the target. common sense will tell you that our security for that ambassador and that consulate was totally inadequate. and after we do that assessment and we're putting the proper security in place, rest assured whatever it looks
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
. >> the question is whether the united states underestimated the threat from hostile groups here. one libyan security official told me that he met with american officials in benghazi three days before the attack took place. he says he warned them not for the first time that security in benghazi was deteriorating. he said "we told the americans the situation was frightening. it scares us." the ambassador too seems to have been aware of the general threat from islamist militants but no one anticipated the terrible violence that would take his life and the life of three other americans on tuesday night. >>> as protests sweep across the world, a former marine says it's not just in retaliation for a movie mocking the prophet muhammud. (sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep? (sfx: loud thud sound) what a strange place. geico®. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with

public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra
. he didn't want to listen to us. if i am president of the united states, i want to listen to a job's council. >> here is our political coverage and he is live in the washington bureau. what mr. romney is doing is fund raising. >> exactly. he is lagged behind last month behind the democrats in fund raise trying to make up the several million gap and appearing in two different fund raisers in san diego and los angeles. last month, the gop fell bihind a few million and every dollar is critical. and especially given the high price of political ads on tv. and that's where the war will be waged. in san diego this afternoon. romney blasted the president over the handling of the economy. >> he increased the number of food stamps 15 million. that's more of the population of ohio a randomly selected state. it is a tragedy. it is it a human trag these are brothers and and real americans who are in poverty because of the policies of the president. >> romney heads to colorado tomorrow for a evening rally in denver. >> congressman paul ryan active on the trail. >> he was campaigning in florida p
one best seller in the united states. this is a topic a lot people are very curious about. so what extra pressure does that put on the u.s. government, mark? >> well, tremendous. now, if anyone remembers back to the pentagon papers case 40 years ago and the thought of could the government stop publication of the book? the legal standard is just too high. the fact is is the book's been out. and obviously media has copies of it. so it would be too difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. the publisher has ratcheted this up. not only increased the print run but expedited the publication date from the 11th to the 4th. so practically speaking there's not even any time for the government to do anything. >> some people might say this is disgusting. you come back, all these other guys are on your team and they don't do this and you want to get rich and you go and put a pseudonym and write the book. other people say no, what's wrong with what he did, after all, the president gave details of what happened in the raid. it's his version where they said bin laden was reaching for a gun an
